Of the plans in the Sterling Systems catalog, the Tarleton stands alone as the only Swiss Chalet style bungalow.
It's especially pretty because of the design restraint. There are simple elaborated rafter ends, but no exposed rafters. The knee braces are simple and sturdy. The siding treatment is mixed board and batten, lapped boards, and shingles. Painting or staining one color maintains a clean, elegant harmony.
In keeping with the expectations raised by the exterior, the interior plan is open from the livingroom to the dining room, with a smallish kitchen, and a hallway that connects the bedrooms and bath. The attic in these homes were often relegated for storage, but it's not unusual to see two small bedrooms carved out of them.
The total square footage is about 720 ... or just over $1 per square foot.
